Installation - do I need one?!
Have you read the download manual yet? Yes? Then read on...

Binary rpm installation:
  • Make sure that you've installed your SDL packages, first.
  • Install the kyra rpm-package.
  • Install the GemHunters rpm-package.
  • Open a console and type gemhun :)

Binary non-packaged installation:
  • If not already done, install those SDL packages, mentioned before, first.
  • Unpack, configure and install kyra if not already done.
  • Create a folder where everything should reside in. ( for ex. mkdir gemhun )
  • Go into it with cd gemhun
  • Unpack both gemhun archives:
    tar -xzf /path/to/download/directory/GemHunters-x86-20040529.tar.gz
    tar -xzf /path/to/download/directory/GemHunters-data-20040529.tar.gz
  • Go into the GemHunters-unix folder.
  • All those lazy users run ./

Source installation:
  • Install, if not already done, those SDL packages along their header files.
  • Unpack, configure and install kyra if not already done.
  • Unpack the gemhun source file:
    tar -xzvf /path/to/download/directory/GemHunters-src-20040529.tar.gz
  • Go into the newly created folder and run ./configure.
    Lazy people could then run ./ but this will also start the game :)
  • If the compilation was a success, try run src/gemhun

Proceed to the howto section.

alternative titlescreen
this one was the former titlescreen... my beloved one likes this one more than the other... one can also see the new pax-selection-menu :)

just thought, that this would be nice. those gems will be replaced by leaves or something...

updated this one for menu-selection-support. download it from here (slow)
